Beyond Here Lies Nothing is the end of the Concrete Grove trilogy and it could not have had a better ending. I loved the previous two books but this one is, hands down, my favourite. The cover art is the best of the series and from the cover onwards, it only gets better and the threads spun throughout the previous books are brought together and woven into a dark, ensnaring web. It is in Beyond Here Lies Nothing that I would say a true sense of numinous awe comes through as the truth behind The Concrete Grove and its denizens, natural and otherwise, is finally explained. There were certain sections that reminded me of Ramsey Campbell's The Darkest Part of the Woods as the story reaches for the cosmic and the weird as much as the grotesque. Make no mistake, Gary McMahon does not pull his punches when it comes to the more visceral scenes here but these underscore the more disturbing aspects of the story rather than becoming excessive or exploitative. The warped state of one returning character has to be seen, or rather read, to be believed. Also, as ever, the author is not satisfied with neat and tidy endings. Here there is still ambiguity and mystery. Questions lead to more questions rather than answers. Much like in life. Dread piles upon dread, leaving you waiting for the next book in the series - then you realise that this is it, that beyond here lies nothing - and that's the way it should be. The Concrete Grove is a trilogy that leaves you reflecting, feeling and thinking in a way that only the best literature can do. I don't just recommend this book. I recommend all three. Go on, treat yourself.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It would perhaps be more accurate to call this 'The Concrete Grove Series', as opposed to Trilogy as the publishers do; each book is almost self-contained, featuring its own separate characters. But in a very real sense this is a trilogy, and superbly structured. I waited until a few weeks before the publication of this final instalment before reading the first two: reading it as one 1100+ page novel was a mesmerising, immersive experience, with the seeds sown in the first two parts coming to fruition in the third's climax.

Set on a gritty, fictitious council estate known as the Concrete Grove, this is urban horror at its finest as the author explores poverty, violence and life on the lowest rung of the ladder, throughout which is woven, in subtle layers, supernatural events emanating from the Needle, a tower block at the centre of the estate's concentric, crop-circle like streets. There's a power there, a force that is trying to get through. And it's succeeding...

The Concrete Grove lies in the Northeast of England, a place that feels permanently shrouded in darkness, even when, as one character remarks, the sun shines hard. A joyless neighbourhood blighted by crime and a life on welfare. Grim and bleak are adjectives that easily spring to mind if I was to describe these books... but I'm wary of that, for they give the impression that the books are heavy going, turgid, something to be slogged through till the end. They're not. Indeed, I found them incredibly brisk reads, not least because of the momentum, the sense of purpose with which McMahon writes. The writer knows where he's going and he's going there at speed, with the reader hurtling along beside him.

One of the worst things about running a horror website, is the fact that you tend to get caught up in it far too much. To the point where you forget to write reviews for books that haven't been sent in for review. So when I realised that I hadn't posted a review for Gary McMahon's Beyond Here Lies Nothing I was both shocked and a little bit embarrassed. The two previous instalments of this loose linked trilogy were some the best horror novels I had read in a long time, dark, gritty tales of pure urban terror. The Concrete Grove trilogy was shaping up to be one of horror's must read trilogies.

Why anyone would be interested in going to The Concrete Grove, is beyond me. This housing estate with the tower block The Needle at its centre is an estate that is beyond repair. It's a run down, shabby, and dirty place whose residents are just as broken as the estate itself. But Marc Price wants to go there, he is interested in the the Northumberland Poltergeist, an infamous case from the 1970's were a pair of twins were haunted by a malevolent spirit named Captain Clickety.

As he investigates he s slowly drawn to the broken mother whose daughter went missing during the spate of child abductions that the media dubbed "The Gone away Girls". However this brings him to the attention of the missing girls father, who pays Marc a visit one night, and makes it more than clear what will happen is he stays. He is also the sights of DS Royle, a policeman who has never truly closed the book on the missing girls, a man haunted by his past.

But when the Scarecrows start appearing with photographs of the missing girls, and the humming birds return to the grove, we know this is beginning of the end. Something is coming to The Grove.
